We have a problem and I hope someone can help. We have a leak in an upstairs bathroom where a shower stall is. In removing the lower tiles so that we can replace the pan, we have found that the tile is applied to something akin to cement and as we remove the tile and cement we have found some type of a metal grate the cement was applied to. My husband is tearing this out with a hammer and chisel. Is there some type of tool that will assist with this? Our bedroom closet is adjacent to the shower stall so I'm thinking that something like a sawzall(sp?) is out of the question. Any ideas???

Was probably added to strengthen the wet bed. Your husband can try metal aviation snips (Tin Snips) But most likely the old concrete is stuck to the metal lath. Hopefully by the time you read this the demo will be complete. Good Luck.
